If you are coming to Williamsburg, Virginia from the north on I–95 and encountering heavy traffic outside Washington, DC, you may want to leave I–95 at Fredericksburg and go south to Yorktown on Route 17, a narrower road with stoplights, but less congested.

    If you are traveling to Williamsburg from the DC area, the vast majority of the traffic congestion is between Springfield and Fredericksburg on I-95. Switching to Rt 17 at Fburg won't save you any time unless there is an accident on 95 or I-64.
